Let’s start by saying that concrete mixers are essential for the people that work in the construction field.
A concrete mixer must have some design features to get a perfect final result.
Some of the design features include:-
- The speed of the rotation of the drum and the arrangement of blades inside the drum.
The combination of these two elements makes the mixture drop down when it gets at the top part of the drum, so that it’s mixed again.
- The counter bottom inside the drum
A very important detail to prevent the material from settling at the bottom of the drum.
(this would mean a wrong mix and material not being mixed in the drum)
- Blades must be bolted, not welded
In case you need to replace them, they will be easy to replace; besides welding makes the drum weaker. For this same reason a drum with an only central welding is preferable.
- A strong frame, with a cabin for the engine that allows a good ventilation
In a concrete mixer, the diesel or petrol engine should be fitted on shock absorbers to protect the structure of the frame and reduce vibrations during use.
